LSU men's track and field had its beginning in 1897. The Tigers have won a total of 6 NCAA championships (2 indoor, 4 outdoor).
In the early history of the program, the team won six Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association titles between 1913 and 1922. During its short period of membership in the Southern Intercollegiate Conference (now known as the Southern Conference) the team also won three consecutive conference titles.
In 1933 the school joined the Southeastern Conference and the track & field team wasted no time making a name for itself, winning the inaugural SEC track & field title as well as the NCAA Men's Outdoor Track and Field Championship, the first NCAA championship in any sport for LSU. LSU men's track & field program won back-to-back NCAA outdoor titles in 1989 and 1990 and they won their 4th outdoor title in 2002.
In 2001 the Tigers won their first indoor NCAA title and their second indoor title in 2004.
